Protecting Our iPads

Help me give my students protective cases for their iPads so they can use them during class lessons and activities.

My Students

The students at my school arrive every day ready to learn. They enthusiastically come to school to gain skills and build their independence.

All of my students have special needs, which can make both school and their lives at home very difficult.

Many of my students would like to become more independent, but are not sure how to learn the necessary skills. I create instructional opportunities for my students so they can practice skills in a real-world environment. We learn money skills, and hands-on science everyday as my students learn to live on their own and participate in society in a positive way.

My Project

Our classroom recently received 8 iPads to use in our daily lessons, but none of them have cases! Given the fragile nature of the technology and the sometimes very active nature of my students, I can't incorporate the iPads into instruction unless they are properly protected.

My students love the flexibility of using an iPad, but they can often be rough on the products by accident.

Students with autism and developmental delays can sometimes be unaware of their strength and the consequences of their actions, so we need to make sure our supplies are as durable as possible. Protecting our new iPads with heavy-duty cases will prevent them from breaking and keep them in class use for a longer period of time.
